Detail - Blouse Front11 viewsThe main fabric used to produce this blouse was a beautiful iridescent coral-strawberry coloured very lightweight silk brocade. The faux "lapels", shoulder trim and triangular trim on the back of the sleeves was done in pure silk taffeta, and the edging in ruby-coloured silk satin. A fine French lace in ivory was used for the high boned collar and yoke. These colours worked perfectly against the deep maroon-brown of the skirt and jacket.
